César Montero was dreaming about elephants. He’d seen them at the movies on Sunday…’

Moments later, César is arrested by police who clear the crowds away from the man he has just killed.

Written just before One Hundred Years of Solitude, this fascinating novel of a Colombian river town possessed by evil points to the author’s later flowering and greatness. Translated by Gregory Rabassa.
